Announcement!!!!! PASSHE Statewide Rally, Tues Mar 22

WCU Community Members:

Please spread as far and wide as you can!

West Chester University APSCUF will be hosting a rally on Tuesday, March 22, to encourage the PA legislature to reject Governor Corbett’s Budget and adequately fund the PA State System of Higher Education next year and in the future.  This is part of a statewide effort to hold rallies at all 14 campuses the day before Senate hearings on the Budget begin.
When: Tues, March 22 from 1:15-2;30.
Where: The lawn by the Ehinger Gym, at the corner of Church St and University Ave, behind the bus stop.
All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to participate.
We are expecting media to be there, so it’s important that the turnout is strong.  We need to make a showing to the Governor and the whole state that our universities matter!
Because of the media presence, however, and the presence on campus of a team from the organization responsible for WCU’s academic accreditation, we (respectfully but firmly) ask that you PLEASE be judicious and respectful in your tone and style if you make signs or banners.  The Governor and his supporters don’t need any more fodder to convince voters and legislators of the wrong message.
More announcements and flyers for the rally will soon be sent around campus through multiple outlets.
In Solidarity,
Seth Kahn, APSCUF-WCU
